BEST PLACE TO BUY VINYL Minneapolis 2001 - Let It Be Records
It's 11:00 a.m. Do you know where your beloved musician is? Before resorting to the face-on-the-milk-carton approach, first swing by the music collector's mecca that is Minneapolis's Let It Be Records--he or she is probably digging through the bins. At the state's largest independently owned record store, one can expect to be assisted by staff who live and breathe their respective genres of interest, which include indie and import rock and pop, world, house, techno, drum 'n' bass, contemporary classical, and experimental. Two spacious floors offer a comprehensive collection of fresh and out-of-print vinyl, new compact discs, limited-edition singles, collectors' items, books, videos, and gear. Hidden away downstairs is the DJ Dance Shop, a club lover's utopia where local spinners are reputed to loiter most of their days away.
